Handy Seafood Announces the Coming of Soft Shell Crab Season

Domestic Panko SSC

Spring brings many wonderful treats and one of the most special is the arrival of the domestic fresh soft crab season.  That wonderful sweet seafood delicacy can be found on restaurant menus and at seafood markets around Mother’s Day. 

“With the season fast approaching, local watermen and the team at Handy Seafood are preparing for another fantastic harvest,” stated Mark Miller, Domestic Sales, at Handy Seafood. “The watermen are rigging their boats, the shanties are being repaired and upgrades are happening to our plant,” said Miller.

Since the last domestic season, Handy has expanded their domestic soft crab product line by offering breaded and battered soft crabs that are ready to cook.  Breaded soft crabs require no preparation and are easy to cook which makes a great product for home customers and restaurant owners.

Handy has been processing soft crabs for 100 years and offers a wide range of soft crabs from fresh, chill dressed, frozen and breaded. For restaurants and retailers looking to purchase soft crabs, contact Mark Miller at [email protected]or your Handy sales representative.
